I have some sad news for our readers and contributors familiar with the work of Phoebe Harkin, The Ophthalmologist’s Deputy Editor, and those who might have met her in person at an ophthalmic event. Phoebe is leaving us this month to work on The Cannabis Scientist – she will be dearly missed!

Below you can find her most recent work, including the amazing cover feature – This Is America. I will leave you with some of my favorite articles commissioned and written by Phoebe, such as the Women in Vision collection and Sitting Down With… Elena Barraquer. Until next time, Aleksandra Jones, Editor
